Chapter Three: The Night Shadows

Summary

The messenger, Jerry Cruncher, trots off into the darkness to deliver the message to the night watchman of Tellson's Bank. On the way, he stops a number of times to scratch his head and think about the perplexing message. In the coach, Mr. Lorry dozes and dreams about the man who has been all but buried alive in a prison for the last eighteen years.


Notes

Mr. Lorry's dream is significant. He sees a man of forty-five with a worn and wasted look, almost like that of a ghost. A conversation with the man reveals that he has been buried for eighteen years and has abandoned all hope of being dug out. Mr. Lorry, in his dream, tries frantically to rescue the man, digging with a spade or a key or even with his bare hands. As he dozes, the dream keeps repeating itself.
